Updated Create iGUIDE Page

Several big changes are coming to the Create iGUIDE page on the iGUIDE Portal (manage.youriguide.com) that will be combined into one release on June 4th, 2024.

  1. Names of the available industries are changing to make selection easier. The actual changes will be as follows:

Residential Real Estate

Real Estate Transaction

Commercial Real Estate

Facility Management

Insurance & Restoration

(No change) Insurance & Restoration

Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Architecture & Remodel

  1. The industry selector will now also affect the available options in the “Choose your Package” dropdown menu. When an Industry is chosen only the most common Packages will be shown to make Package selection faster and easier. Each industry selection has its own unique set of Packages.

  1. An important new feature is the “Manually configure” option that will always appear at the bottom of the Choose your Package dropdown menu. “Manually Configure” will allow for more control over what is selected. Some options found in this section will only be available here. The options in this section will always be the same regardless of the industry chosen.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are a current DWG Add-on or RVT Add-on customer, you will now find those two options under “Manually configure”.

  1. “Disable Property Address”: This is a much-requested feature that will allow you to create an iGUIDE with no address selected. A unique name or number can be added instead to help identify the iGUIDE. Properties with a disabled address will not be indexed by Google or other search engines.

New Advanced Drawing Packages & Add-ons

New and different options will now be available under several Industry selections on June 4th, 2024. These new options are intended as more complete solutions for documenting a property where the goal is to modify that property rather than market it. A more detailed description of what these packages contain can also be found in the Support Area of the iGUIDE Portal.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 2D CAD will not be upgradable to 3D CAD at launch. For 3D CAD, a new iGUIDE must be created.

iGUIDE 3D CAD Package

iGUIDE's 3D CAD Package is a robust set of drawings and digital property information that are based on accurate laser measurements and created by skilled drafting professionals. This Package is intended to accelerate the design/build process by helping property owners give Architects, Designers, and Contractors the 2D drawings and 3D model they need to move quickly with their work.

Reflected Ceiling Plans

Reflected Ceiling Plans (RCPs) are architectural drawings that show the ceiling layout of a space. Unlike typical floor plans which depict walls, doors, and windows, RCPs focus solely on the ceiling elements and are mirrored to match the floor plan. This is an additional add-on available with 2D CAD Packages, 3D CAD Packages, DWG, and RVT.

Price: $0.03/ft² USD, $0.04/ft² CAD

Delivery time: Identical to package delivery time.

iGUIDE Standard Sketch

This is identical to iGUIDE Standard + ESX Add-on. To make your order easier, the Package has been combined with the Add-on under one name. There will be no change in price or deliverables.

iGUIDE Premium Sketch

This is identical to iGUIDE Premium + ESX Add-on. To make your order easier, the Package has been combined with the Add-on under one name. There will be no change in price or deliverables.

CAD Packages & Add-ons available globally

Starting June 4th all CAD Packages and Add-ons will be available worldwide and will no longer be restricted to North America. The CAD files produced are still primarily intended for North America and may not meet the needs of other parts of the world. Please download a sample and determine if the output meets your needs before ordering.

DXF now only included with CAD Packages or Add-ons

Starting June 4th, 2024 DXF file output will be restricted to the following Packages and Add-ons:

  • Radix

  • 2D CAD

  • 3D CAD

  • DWG Add-on

  • RVT Add-on

The DXF file, which was previously available with every iGUIDE Standard or Premium, will no longer be available unless one of the above Packages or Add-ons is ordered. This change is occurring to offset the rising cost of DXF production resulting from improvements made to the final output.

Consolidated delivery via a single ZIP file

Files associated with CAD Packages and Add-ons will now be bundled together into a single ZIP file for delivery.

Example 1: If an iGUIDE Standard is ordered with a DWG Add-on the downloadable ZIP file will contain the DXF file and the DWG file.

Example 2: If a 3D CAD Package is ordered the downloadable ZIP file will contain the DXF file, DWG files, RVT file, and PDF files.

The goal of this consolidation is to make downloading all relevant files associated with a project more convenient.
